Andrea Brillantes received an unexpected gift from her fellow actress Ivana Alawi on her 18th birthday last March 12.

In her latest vlog, "Unboxing almost a million worth of birthday gifts", Andrea shared for the first time the birthday presents she received from her family and friends, including a designer bag gifted to her by Ivana.


"Ito guys. Kahit naman bigyan niya lang ako ng papel, masayang masaya na ako. Pero hindi ko in-expect, binigyan ako ni ate Ivana ng bag. Alam mo 'yun, candy lang ang saya saya ko na," said Andrea.

"Binigyan ako ng Gucci bag. Ito actually ang unang na-receive ko sa birthday ko. As in mismong birthday ko... Sobrang salamat po ate Ivana. I love you so much. Kung alam mo lang, mahal na mahal kita," she added.

The bag, the Gucci Ophidia Mini Round GG Flora Chain-Strap Backpack, is priced at $980.00 or about P47,062.05, according to luxury retail store Neiman Marcus. 

Reading the note that came with Ivana's gift, Andrea said: "'Happy birthday, Blythe.' Iba. Bleh. Tapos sabi niya pa sa 'kin ang lakas ko raw sa kanya. Bleh. Sorry, guys. Ako na 'yung nauna. Pasensiya na sa pila niyo," she added.

Aside from Ivana’s generous gift, Andrea also showed the birthday gifts she received from her Kadenang Ginto co-star Dimples Romana—a red mini-fridge—and doctor to the stars Vicki Belo—a brand new camera.

"Pangarap kong magkaroon ng ganito, guys," she said, as she opened Dimples' gift. "Pangarap ko talaga. Meron na akong sariling ref para sa kwarto ko, and hindi siya ordinary ref. Ito 'yung gusto kong brand." 

"Ang ganda ganda niya," she said of Vicki's present. "Kung napapansin niyo mas maganda na 'yung quality ng aking mga vlogs... Thank you po kay Doc Vicki Belo. Thank you so, so much po sa pag-regalo sa akin nitong dream camera ko."

As seen in her vlog, the other gifts she received included bags, shoes, and accessories from luxury brands Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, Prada, and Givenchy.

"Ito talaga 'yung first time na nakatanggap ako ng maraming designer na mga bagay," she said. 

"Gusto ko lang po ulit magpasalamat sa lahat lahat ng sumusuporta sa akin at nagmamahal sa akin at nagbigay ng mga regalong ito para sa akin. Sobrang halaga po nun para sa akin so thank you so much," she added.
